Why Upgrade to a Solid State Disk Drive?

More Performance
Your System Runs Faster

With an SSD, your system will start up and shut down quicker, applications will load faster and feel more responsive, and even games will perform better as levels load more quickly. With virtually instant data access times, SSDs also outperform traditional hard drives in data lookup, file transfers, and other disk-intensive work.

Better battery life
Longer Battery Life

Using an SSD with your notebook or netbook means you'll enjoy longer battery life. Traditional mechanical hard drives consume large amounts of power to start up and seek data. With no moving parts, SSDs use less of your precious battery power, resulting in longer running times.

Durability
Tougher and More Durable

Because an SSD uses all solid-state electronics with no moving parts, it can handle shock and vibration far in excess of traditional hard drives and will survive wider temperature swings. For durability and toughness on the road, nothing outperforms an SSD.

Pros for SSD drives are they run cooler, quiet and faster than any spinning platter drives out there.
Amazon Customer
I must agree that this technology gives better performance to any system but the pricing makes you think twice before one jumps into it.

I've had this drive for about a month now and all I can say is wow. The moment I press the power button on my computer to windows being ready to use literally takes 12 seconds, and that's counting the bios posting! I installed Windows 7 64-bit on the drive and have a 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black as my data. Disabled hibernation and confirmed TRIM was active and was all set to go. So far no problems, I did move the temp directory to my platter drive along with the "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)" folders. I did setup the bios SATA controller from IDE to ACHI as recommended. Go to the Corsair support forums and under the SSD section, they have a sticky post about how to optimize your F60. I am one very happy Corsair customer, but of course I also have this SSD drive housed in a Corsair 700D case, Corsair 850HX power supply, Corsair Dominator memory, and the Corsair H50 liquid CPU cooler. A Corsair fan boy? Maybe but I know good build quality when I see it. I'm sold on SSD drives but they're still expensive. Is a SSD drive a requirement for good computer performance? No, you can get a good quality 7200 or 10k RPM drive and still get very good performance. Pros for SSD drives are they run cooler, quiet and faster than any spinning platter drives out there. The big negative elephant in the room, price, price per byte. SSD are still in the early stages of product consumer mainstay but in a couple of years, the price of SSD drives will go enough and you will see them in more OEM computers.

Now my only real problem I have, waiting for the 1TB PCIe SSD drives prices to go down from on average $5k.

My only complaint is no-one said to me "Buy this drive now". These drives are very fast and noiseless. I purchased two and have them running in a raid 0 configuration with Gentoo Linux. Boot up time is +/- 5 to 10 seconds (the network configuration is the only thing that holds up the boot process), applications are near instantaneous, Open Office opens nearly instantly, so does the Gimp graphics package. Shutdown time is +/- 3 seconds. If your productivity requires speed ie, you cannot afford the time to make a cup of coffee while a large file loads, or for an application to start up, get these drives, they are worth every cent.
One issue one may pick up is this: because the drives are flash based, they rewrite sectors on a frequent basis and this may confuse SMART monitoring, Gnome keeps on telling me that one of the drives may be failing, Windows may have other issues so it is worth it to check these things before using them for a given application. However, if you need data on hand quickly, these are certainly the drives to get.
Hardware setup:
AMD 965 quad core CPU
16GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333MHz ram
ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 motherboard
2x Corsair 60 GB Force Series Ultra Fast SSDs
Gentoo Linux

I substituted this SSD for a slow 320GS SATA hard disk in a Toshiba Satellite T235-1340RD netbook system and a slow, ho-hum netbook suddenly was more than fast enough to run Windows 7 Pro with less delay than my quad-core desktop systems using 10,000 rpm Raptor hard disks. This is an extremely fast hard disk and substituted in an existing system with absolutely no problem after I cloned the old drive, including transfer of the Windows 7 OS, to it. Because of the TRIM features, it will defragment properly.

The "Force" series tests as quite a bit faster than older SSD models. It's an excellent rejuvenation for a too-slow portable system and seems to have improved battery life, as well, compared to the mechanical hard disk. Use the replaced mechanical hard disk for near-line storage with a small 2.5" USB external enclosure.

Corsair ships a metal caddy to adapt this 2.5" drive to a standard 3.5" hard disk bay, so it's usable with desktop systems as well.

This is an amazingly fast drive. It has all of the features you would want from a current generation SSD, TRIM 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write. It does not get much better than this Corsair SSD. Also, at 60GB it is more than enough for Windows 7 and all the basic apps you would need. Enjoy! I know I am! :)
